This advanced workshop is designed for psychologists who have completed basic professional education in assessment and treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It will review recent ADHD research findings and introduce new models for understanding ADHD as developmental impairment of executive functions. Emphasis will be on treatment of adults, adolescents, and children whose ADD is complicated by impaired motivation, bipolar disorder, substance abuse, learning disorders, OCD, anxiety disorders or autism spectrum disorder.
Learning Objectives
1. Comprehend clinical implications of recent research findings regarding ADHD and its treatment.
2. Assess cases of ADHD complicated by various combinations of comorbid disorders, e.g., bipolar disorder, autism spectrum disorders, anxiety disorders, learning disorders and OCD.
3. Recognize clinical adaptations needed for treatment of ADHD in special populations, e.g., preschoolers, high IQ children and adults, substance abusers and children of divorced parents.
4. Utilize valid assessment instruments for comprehensive assessment of ADHD and related problems.
5. Conduct and report evaluations of patients with ADHD in ways that will help them get needed accommodations and treatments.
6. Assess advantages and disadvantages of medication options for ADHD treatment.
7. Tailor multimodal treatment plans for children, adolescents and adults who suffer from complicated cases of ADD.
